Anti-Dark Spots Cosmetics
Have you started noticing some unevenness on your skin of late? Acne scars, age spots, pregnancy marks, darkened areas among other types of skin discolouration can make you feel older than your age and may prompt you to go for harsh cosmetic lightening products, surgery or several natural treatment procedures available today.
Dealing with hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is a broad term covering all types of dark spots on your skin. This occurs when your body secretes too much of melanin – the skin pigment responsible for colour, in specific areas, resulting in blotchy and dark areas. Hyperpigmentation is mostly manifested on the chin, cheeks, forehead and upper lip.
The exposure of your skin to the skin damaging UV rays is the most common cause of hyperpigmentation as it activates an excess production of melanin, resulting in discolouration and dark spots.
Hormonal changes, inflammation and certain medical conditions such as celiac disease and Cushing’s disease may also trigger hyperpigmentation.
How to treat hyperpigmentation
The treatment of hyperpigmentation starts with skin cosmetics that help fade away the dark patches through exfoliation. Such cosmetics slough away the outer skin layer, giving way to fresh and lighter skin. Some of these include Even Better by Clinique and Ideal White by Carita.
When using any of these products, it’s important that you protect your skin from harsh UV rays to help your skin heal faster. UV rays are harmful to the skin if its exposed to them for long durations.
A gentle form of treatment for all skin types
Our skins respond best when we treat them gently. If we respond to hyperpigmentation with harsh chemicals such as hydroquinone, we disrupt the skin’s natural healing processes, and it’s likely to respond with inflammation and breakouts.
Regular nature-based cures are likely to help your skin get rid of the dark patches leaving your skin healthy and supple. Using natural ingredients such as vitamin A serums boosts the production of collagen, which helps it regain its youthful lustre and also acts as a natural sunscreen.
Enlighten by Estée Lauder contains natural fatty acids from flowers together with anti-aging serums that are meant to rejuvenate your skin and get rid of all signs of hyperpigmentation.
A combination of cosmetology and homemade skin care remedies such as a honey mask tend to work more efficiently. Make it an everyday habit to cleanse your face every morning using a mild cleanser and follow with either Ideal White by Carita, Even Better by Clinique or Enlighten by Estée Lauder. Then, at the end of your day, wash your face using a mild soap and apply natural honey on your face, leaving it on for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water, pat your skin dry and let it breathe for a few seconds before applying your favourite skin serum.
If you follow this routine for 12 straight weeks, you will notice a significant difference. The spots will have fades, and your skin will be bright, tighter and youthful.
